EX-YU Aviation News was launched on June 1, 2008 with the aim of bringing together commercial aviation news from the former Yugoslavia. Ever since, the site has become the go-to place for news from the region and is updated on a daily basis with fresh articles available from 09.00 Central European Time.

In 2011, the popular "Vintage" section of the site was introduced, documenting and publishing over 500 photographs celebrating the rich history of the aviation industry in the former Yugoslavia. In 2014, a "News Flash" section was launched, providing short aviation news updates from the region. Also in 2014, a weekly newsletter was introduced rounding up all of the week's news.

EX-YU Aviation News uses a mix of original and aggregated content. The site has published over 9.300 news items including interviews with airline and airport executives, both local and international, and broken numerous industry exclusives. For eight years in a row, between 2016 and 2023, EX-YU Aviation News was named one of the top fifty most influential aviation blogs and websites for aviation professionals by Feedspot, which compiles the most comprehensive list of the best aviation blogs on the Internet, ranking in eighth in 2021, 2022 and 2023. In 2019, it was also selected as one of the top sixty best aviation blogs by Experitdo, one of the largest and most comprehensive product review sites in the United States.
